Good news for fans of the Washington Huskies: stud tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins may be able to return for the season opener against the Boise State Broncos. Seferian-Jenkins suffered a broken pinkie earlier in the week but is evidently making a quick recovery.

Washington quarterback Keith Price voiced his belief that the start tight end won’t miss any games:

Yeah, I know he’ll be back. He’ll be back (for Boise State). He just told me today: ‘Hey, man, I could play today if I really wanted to.’ He’s awesome, man. He’s an extremely hard worker. I know he’ll be back with us (Bell on the Beat).

Head coach Steve Sarkisian was less optimistic than Price, saying the team was handling the situation day to day:

Just as we thought from the X-ray, it was a clean break. They inserted the pin in his pinkie. And now the rehab process is under way.

 

I’m going to take it day to day and see how [the cast being worn by Seferian-Jenkins] responds. I haven’t gotten that far, quite honestly. Surgery yesterday. We’ll see.

Seferian-Jenkins caught 69 passes for 852 yards and 7 touchdowns last year.
